How To Make Money With Social Media: Ranked By Platform

If you haven’t noticed there is a war of the social media worlds happening right now. The goal of every platform is to gain as many users as possible and have their app be the first that the user checks when they wake up in the morning.

Most people do this already, but what they don’t realize is that these programs are designed to keep you coming back for more.

Social Media Is Included In Our Lifestyles

It used to be where people would say that they only used social media to keep up with family, friends from high school, or work colleagues.

That is no longer the case. Today, social media is also used for entertainment, therapy, news, and business. And, much more.

Content creators have made a name for themselves through social media. The amount of wealth that has been generated over the last 10 years from social media has been phenomenal.

Millionaires have been made by individuals who learned to maximize and monetize Instagram and Facebook in particular.

It’s not just people with large followings who learned how to make money from social media. Regular people who have had a post go viral have edited their caption and then added their personal website links, or cash handles. Sellers groups have been formed where individuals can promote themselves, and let’s not forget the many marketplace social apps that have been created.

There are many ways to make money with social media. But how? Continue reading and you will learn which social media sites are the best for monetization.

The following social media apps have been listed by the most profitable:

Instagram

Instagram is at the top of the list because in recent months the platform has collaborated with seller sites such as Etsy and Big Cartel. They, and others, can be integrated to where a shop button can appear directly on the users page.

If you don’t have a store but you own a website, simply add your link in your bio to drive traffic to your site.

With Instagram’s Direct Messaging feature it allows viewers to contact you directly if they see an item on your page that they are interested in.

Sellers Tips:

  • Include a CTA (Call To Action) in your caption when you post. (Examples: “Click the link in my bio to shop,” or “DM me for rates.”)
  • Take quality product photos and modeling photos.
  • Create separate business and personal profiles. Instagram allows you to be signed into up to six accounts at once.
  • Pay for ads with your most popular products first.

Facebook

Facebook is unique when it comes to making money in many different ways. On your personal profile you can freely post your products as much, or as little as you want. This tactic works for some, and for others it may come off as spam.

To avoid being blocked or deleted by your friends, there are other ways to promote your products and services on Facebook.

Create a Facebook page. As with Instagram, Facebook allows you to directly link your shop (and website) to your Facebook business page.

Keep in mind, if you create a page you will have to promote it yourself mainly or pay for Facebook Ads.

Facebook groups can be great if you know how to use them correctly. Join groups that are specific to your niche (examples: blogging, fitness, travel, crypto, self publishing, finance, or crafting), as well as join entrepreneurship business groups that allow anyone to participate.

Group Tip: Follow the sellers rules of the groups you are in. Learn which days are for promotions, and if they don’t allow any advertising. Some groups are strictly for providing information, which can still help you succeed in other areas of the website/app.

TikTok

Earn with the TikTok Creator Fund. The platform knows that creators are constantly finding innovative new ways of creative expression and they want to reward it’s top users.

What is TikTok Creator Fund?

TikTok Creator Fund rewards creators for doing what they do best — making incredible TikTok videos. It’s TikTok’s way of celebrating and supporting creators for their dedication, ingenuity, and spirit.

Who is eligible?

To participate in TikTok Creator Fund, you must meet certain eligibility requirements.

If you have a personal brand be sure to add your website link in your bio and make content mentioning it so viewers know where to shop for the item they just liked.

Twitter

How To Make Money In The Cannabis Industry Without Selling Cannabis

For personal reasons, job restrictions, and federal guidelines, there are many people who believe in the cannabis plant and its benefits but they do not consume the products. There are many who actually work within the cannabis industry who have never consumed the plant. This may or may not come as a surprise to you but it’s very true.

In fact, during the voting period to legalize marijuana in Oakland, CA, I met several individuals who were seeking equity in the area but shook their heads with a hard no when asked if they ever tried their own products. In my opinion, if proper testing is being done to ensure that the products being sold are safe, I see nothing wrong with this.

The cannabis market is expected to grow exponentially within the next 5-10 years. With that being so, there are many of people who will have the opportunity to make a name for themselves within the industry.
